DePuy Hip Implant Lawsuit

For the last 20 years hip replacements, offering more mobility and less recovery time, have been on the rise. Promises of newer models were often attractive and many people in need of hip replacements were eager to try these “improved” devices — until several of the implants were recalled. For the hundreds of thousands of people who have already been surgically implanted with metal-on-metal implants like DePuy’s Pinnacle hip implant, the question is: What happened?

Robins Cloud’s team of hip replacement lawyers has been on the forefront of DePuy implant litigation. Working with other law firms, our DePuy hip attorneys currently represent hundreds of men and women harmed by the implants. Now, more than 8,000 lawsuits have been consolidated in Texas federal courts in a multidistrict litigation.

Future candidates for hip surgery will benefit from the recall. But what about the patients who have already been fitted with the potentially faulty medical devices?

What Went Wrong?

Not too long ago metal-on-metal hip implants were hailed as the new star in artificial hips implants. The New York Times noted that one in three hip replacement procedures in the United States utilized the all-metal design in recent years. The device was even promoted for younger patient groups.

But then the high failure rates started to manifest. It was not long until patients started speaking up, voicing their concerns after suffering painful side effects from the breakdown of the implant’s metal surfaces. The potential side effects include bone, tissue and muscular issues as well as “Metallosis,” “Necrosis” and “Osteolysis,” words that spell trouble due to metal toxicity in the blood.

But that’s not all; additional side effects may include:

Johnson and Johnson’s DePuy division stopped selling its Pinnacle hip implant in 2013, which was not long after we started representing patients who suffered serious symptoms after implant surgery.

We are proud to continue representing patients as these cases move forward and remove on the forefront of meaningful pharmaceutical litigation.
